ECT’s expert team for services around biocidal products is experienced in preparing and reviewing dossier documents according to the Biocidal Products Directive (BPD, 98/8/EC) such as documents I-IV as well as the IUCLID datasets of various product types (PT). We are familiar with the new Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012) and closely follow any updates of the relevant documents and guidance.

We have specialised in the areas of ecotoxicology, chemical fate and behaviour, and physico-chemical properties. Our expertise includes exposure and risk assessments by using appropriate Emission Scenario Documents (ESD), the Technical Guidance Document (TGD), the Technical Notes for Guidance (TNsG) and tools such as the European Union System for the Evaluation of Substances (EUSES).

In order to provide our customers with complete dossiers and registration services, ECT closely works together with experienced long-term partners in a formal cooperation called RegisGate. More information about RegisGate and the offered services can be found at
